PTA Announcements

  • PTA In-Person Meeting Cancelled

    Due to the rapidly evolving situation related to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak in New York City, the PS166 PTA board has decided to cancel its in-person PTA general membership meeting on March 19, 2020 at 8:30AM. We are exploring ways to host a PTA meeting virtually, whether online or via teleconference. We will also send PTA-related updates via email and backpack express.
    The PTA’s primary responsibility is to help support the school and our community and to keep our community healthy and safe. If you have any questions or concerns, we encourage you to reach out to us.

  • A Note from the Fundraising Team of the PTA

    Fairway Market recently filed for bankruptcy, and unfortunately this has meant the suspension of the Fairway Community Partners program. We’ll no longer get 3% kicked back for purchases made online or in the stores. Please don’t throw away your key fob or card just yet, however -- the eventual new owners may reinstate the program. 
    We still have several fundraising opportunities, though -- including online retailers AmazonShutterfly, and Mabel’s Labels, as well as local retailers West Side Kids and Book Culture. You can find all the links and information on this page of the Shop to Support page.  

  • Auction - New this Year

    The PS166 2020 Annual Auction is approaching and its time to start filling those baskets!  The baskets are a fun and special part of the auction and raise substantial funds for our school.  This year, instead of collecting items for one specific basket, please collect an item for ANY of the baskets.  This will enable you to get creative and use your connections to provide something for our fun basket raffle.
    As of now, here are the basket themes for our 2020 Auction: 
    1) Food and Drink: 
                Ideas: Wine/glasses, restaurant gift certificates, cheese tastings, cooking classes, in-home entertaining/dining supplies, kitchen tools, etc….
    2) Health and Beauty
    Ideas: cosmetics, gym class/spa/salon gift certificates, work out apparel, yoga mats, water bottles, healthy eating meal-plan services, etc…
    3) Sports and games!
    Ideas: tickets, sports swag, autographed items, board games, gift certificates for interactive family activities, etc…
    4) Kids! Kids! Kids! 
    Ideas: toys, games, electronics, clothing, activities (classes, birthday party packages, camps, etc), etc...
    5) Date Night
    Ideas: Florist, dining experiences, tickets to events, babysitting services, car service credits, etc…
    6) Summer Fun
                Ideas: Summer camps, pool/swimming classes or club memberships, vacation homes, out of city experiences, camping gear, beach stuff, etc…

    Once you have an item, you can simply fill out this form and receive a receipt.  It is also easy to hand a paper form to your server after dinner (or when you pick your kid up from a fun class or party).  If you collect a physical item, we will be collecting the items in a few weeks.  

  • Save the Date! The PS166 2020 Annual Auction is approaching

    Online Auction Launch: March 9, 2020 

    Live Auction and Gala: March 21, 2020

    As you travel and attend holiday parties in the next few weeks, please ask your best friend or favorite aunt who works at that super-cool place to donate to our auction!  The best items come from personal connections, and all you have to do is ask...once you get the "yes!" simply fill out this form and they will receive a receipt.
